(NewsReady.com) – Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is currently in her second term in Congress. She won her reelection campaign in 2022 by the skin of her teeth. Since then, she has separated from her husband. Recently, she appeared to be on a date when she was kicked out of a musical in Denver.
On September 9, Boebert and a male companion attended a performance of “Beetlejuice.” The congresswoman wasn’t able to watch the entire show, however, because she was asked to leave the theater. Officials with the Denver Arts & Venues told The Denver Post that two individuals — not naming them — were removed from the Buell Theatre during the performance by the touring Broadway cast. They explained the duo was warned about their behavior during intermission, after complaints from three theatergoers. Boebert was accused of recording the performance and taking photos, both of which are not allowed. She was also accused of vaping.
Boebert’s campaign manager, Drew Sexton, issued a statement confirming she was removed from the theater but denying the congresswoman was vaping. In a post on X, the Republican said she was pleading “guilty to laughing and singing too loud!” She joked that people who see it should tell her how it ends.
It's true, I did thoroughly enjoy the AMAZING Beetlejuice at the Buell Theatre and I plead guilty to laughing and singing too loud! 🤭
Everyone should go see it if you get the chance this week and please let me know how it ends! 😅https://t.co/8JHypcCKsP

A pregnant woman who attended the show said the congresswoman was vaping in front of her. She claimed that when she asked her to stop, Boebert said, “No.” Although the representative denied vaping, surveillance video from inside the theater shows her doing exactly that, and it also shows a pregnant woman talking to her.

A report states that Boebert and her companion refused to leave at first, saying things like “you don’t know who I am” and “I will be contacting the mayor.” When employees said they would call law enforcement, she reportedly told them to go ahead. The police arrived and stayed until the congresswoman left, though they didn’t have to get directly involved.
